Ozma Tippetarius is the princess and rightful ruler of the land of Oz. She is also known as Tip due to being turned into a boy so she could stay hidden from those who would harm her.
In the NovelEdit
The lore surrounding the Ozma monarchy is discussed sporadically. A series of Ozmas previously ruled Oz for centuries and each defined with a title before the Wizard invaded the land and overthrew the monarchy. The reign of Ozma is a Lurlinist tradition in believing that she reincarnates herself. In being born from coming of age, Oz is ruled by the Ozma Regent which is usually the previous Ozma's husband. Legend says she is hidden and is frozen in ice in a cave, but obviously in later books, its revealed that she was magically turned into a male. Elphaba makes several remarks about Ozma in not believing in a "child savior".
Ozma Tippetarius in the form of Tip first encounters Liir while traveling with an unnamed woman (La Mombey) who jokingly offers him in exchange for the Witch's broom, but Liir declines.
Tip later meets Rain at St. Prouds in the abandoned boys dormitory where Rain is sent where she falls in love with, but he is apprehended along with Liir by Momey who is the leader of the Munckinland Revolt. A plot device similar to The Marvelous Land of Oz occurs and Tip is turned back into Ozma and she is reinstated as the rightful ruler of Oz.
